I will probably put more of these kind of links up in the future , but this should keep you busy should you want something else besides music on walks, drives, etc. You probably know this, but one does not need an IPOD or other MP3 player to simply listen. If you wish to download and just listen on your computer, use your mouse and hover it over the links- if the page does not have a clear download link, usually there is something that says ‘listen’ or similar- hover your mouse over these and look at the bottom of your browser screen as you do- when you find the one that ends in .mp3, you have found it- just use your right hand mouse clicker and highlight ‘save as’ or ‘save target as’ and save it to a place on your computer you will remember (you can make a folder on your desktop or wherever). Most of you know this already, but for those who don’t. Usually Itunes or Windows media player will play it. Once in a while the file might be in another format like .wma or .ogg, but one of your players should be able to recognize it . Enjoy.

Oy Vey: The Money changers pod cast http://www.econtalk.org/archives.html
I found this months ago whilst combing the web for my writing on the FLDS situation. In one of these, can’t remember if it is in part 1, 2, or 3, this brutha tells the host how he would like to see Gladys Knight sing one of the Mormon songs, how he could like to see more expressiveness (you know, like in that movie ‘The Color Purple’ with all that clapping and singing stuff) instead of the reserved, respectful usual manner (read White) traditional LDS church deportment. This one is worth it for the hosts ‘tolerance’ and very Whitely and Delightfully humoring his guest. http://mormonstories.org/?p=81

http://www.logicallycritical.net/Episodes.html You won’t agree with him on everything- but isn’t that how it is for us almost everywhere? Like his take on home school/diversity/illegals (and at times it almost appears like he is playing Devil’s Advocate- hard to tell-) , but many of us can relate to the utter lameness/incompetency we consistently encounter every day. A fun one was the rant on the inefficiencies/redundancy/un-user-friendliness of computers in ‘Silicon Slaves’. Aside from content, it can also give people who are also into radio/podcasting an example of how he integrates sound effects/produces his podcasts. Sometimes he tends to get a bit carried away with the sound effects and his own cleverness, but at least you the guy is not slow, drunk, or talking about his pet Sharpei.
